Cute concept, poor execution

Aug 26, 2014

  • medium tones

I've had this product for 9 months so I feel like I can give an adequate review of the quality. I don't see myself reaching for the product at all, and when I do, it's only because I feel bad wasting the product after buying it. It doesn't last all day. I have light skin tone, and I got the medium stick, and even then the contour wasn't dark enough for me.. It blends into thin air. Everytime I put it on my face and blend, it doesn't stay. It's only visible when I apply directly, but who wants visible straight contour lines on their face? Wish the quality was good.

Fair at best..

I ordered the chiaroscuro stick last year... I'm not sure if I just ordered the wrong shade or I'm doing it wrong, but the highlighting shade barely shows up on my skin... and I'm very very light complexioned... almost blue. Also, the product goes very fast. The concept is really cool and the contouring shade does pretty well on application, however after about an hour it fades. Great idea, tho. Hopefully it will be reformulated.

Love love love this product!

This is just an amazing product. It highlights what I want to show off and hides the rest. You can easily blend it with your fingers or with a sponge. It takes 2 minutes and completely changes your face to just how you want it to look. I definitely recommend this product!

easily breakable

The concept is cool but breaks incredibly easy the slightest pressure can snap it off(which is what happened to mine). Her products are labeled as a "luxury brand" when there barley a step above drug store quality

next best thing for me!

I just received this product and already playing around with it! The quality is amazing, it glides on smoothly and creamy but when you blend it with your fingers, it becomes powdery in texture and it's just so lovely! I noticed that if you blend too much then it would begin to blend into the skin too much to the point that the effect goes away, so obviously I wouldn't blend too much like how one would with eyeshadow! The shade itself is a little too warm for me... But my skintone is kind of weird anyway, I have this weird greyish understone. Either way I love this, and I had to buy two because of how awesome it is!

Do not recommend..

  • medium tones

I really had high hopes for this and really wanted to like it as i've been waiting for the medium shade to come back in stock for a while. on top of the hefty delivery charge for this silly myus delivery procedure for those ordering internationally (which cost as much as the product itself might i add) i wouldn't have minded as much if the product didnt fail to deliver. I ordered the medium tone which seem more like it's for fair since it blended into my skin (and i'm rather fair but wanted to be safe by choosing darker) and disappeared without any trace of a contoured look. on top of that, the sculpting colour was so odd. it was so orange. if this is meant for all medium tones in general then the colour should be a neutral shade instead of warm-toned since not everyone has warm-toned skin. needless to say I won't be ordering from here again especially with the expensive delivery process that's implemented.

fair for light skintones

  • fair tones

it works really well! I love the concept behind it and how smoothly it blends. The highlighter is a nice shimmery colour. It's still pretty pricey. I need to get new ones, when will they be available again??

IN LOVE WITH THE CONTOUR COLOR!

Apr 8, 2014

  • fair tones

This is now my go-to contour product. The color is perfect for my fair skin, and the stick formulation makes it a snap to put on. My only gripe-- the highlight barely shows up on me, and I never use it, so the contour side is nearly gone while I'm left with practically the entire highlight side. Still, the contour end alone is worth the entire purchase price. Absolutely cannot live without this.

Wasn't impress :(

  • medium tones

My bf brought one for me. I was super duper happy and excited to try it but wasn't what I thought. I like how it was creamy. I got the shade Medium but it didn't show as well when I was contouring. But I love the highlighter.

Perfecto!!!!!

I was contouring my nose previously with a brush and concealer and of course had to hope my line was straight. I came across this product by accident and it was EXACTLY what I needed. It took the guess work out, I don't have to have a steady hand, and I have the perfect color (deep). I don't even have to wear anything else!!!! This is definitely my "go to" product. Big thank you!!!

Great idea, low quality

Mar 30, 2014

  • fair tones

Like softened butter. This highlighter duo is such a great idea, and the color works well for my light skin. I was, however, very disappointed in the quality. On the first day of receiving it, I could already tell that the makeup was flimsy - I lightly tried applying it and the contour color (not the hardware, but the actual makeup part) broke inside. I didn't even twist the contour shade up all the way. The highlighter side was even softer, and although it did not break, its form was not kept. I could swipe a finger on it and I would end up grabbing too much highlighter. *Look at pictures* I love everything that this makeup brand and michelle stand for. I love the concept behind the chiaroscuro stick. But I couldn't love the texture and quality of it. Maybe I just got a bad one? Unfortunately, I will not be purchasing this again :(

Love the contouring part

Mar 15, 2014

  • fair tones

I really like this product. The only problem I have is that the highlighter is shimmery, so people with oily skin such as myself look a bit awkward in it. The contour colour is perfect for my face, but I also find that the highlighter also blends in so much that it looks like I just brushed sparkles onto my face, and you can't really see any effect at all. This may just be because I have such a pale complexion that no foundation I've ever tried has fit me. I really love how the "fair" colour in this is cool toned so that it blends in well with my skin. Most companies that say something is "fair" add quite a yellow, warm tone to it to make it much darker than what most pale skinned people need. Is it possible you could come out with a matte version of this? If so, I would absolutely love it!

Amazing!

Although I was a little worried this colour would be a little dark for my skin I am completely relieved and extremely happy to say this product is incredible! The contour colour blends perfectly and is so easy to use! I definitely recommend product!

This product is amazing and very easy to use, I've always had trouble trying to contour my face but this makes it so easy to do!! I highly recommend this!!!

Awesome even for light tones

Mar 5, 2014

  • fair tones

I got the stick in fair tones because light tones is out of stock like for forever. I was pretty nervous about how it would turn out but it is abtually pretty good! The highlighter is very nice, pretty shimmering colour, and the contour shade glides on great, it's good even for those who have "light" skin tones. Only thing the price is pretty high for the quantity you get.

Absolutely dissapointing

I got the dark one from a friend who didn't like it. We are convinced this stuff is some rebranded lipstick from L'Oreal. It made my skin break out.

absolutely love!

I love this chiaroscuro contour and highlighter stick. I am bad with contouring and it's a mess for me but chiaroscuro stick is very easy to use, and it blends really well to your skin and gives you a nice contour. The colors are also nice, texture and quality gives a huge plus to it. The design of the stick is awesome. The only thing I didn't like (a little minus) was the price, but I think it's worth it :-). Highly recommend this chiaroscuro stick for everyone.

Love this product!

This product is the perfect finishing touch to my makeup. It glides on so smooth and is very subtle. The light part makes your skin bright and picks up the light, the dark part adds a shadowy effect.

love the idea, but not the reality

  • medium tones

I have the medium shades and have been using since December. I loved the idea of it but the actual execution of it is off. The highlight shade just kind of disappears into my skin tone and the contouring shade is barely visible. I highly doubt that I'm a "dark" shade and it would probably look insanely bad on me. I might have to invest in the pallet instead for more color options.
